-Cassandra began her relationship with Oracle as one of her scouts, or "eyes", during the No Man's Land crisis. She is the daughter of Cain, a well known assasin, who taught her nothing but the ways of martial arts - not even teaching her how to speak. He made her into just one thing, a killing machine. But, she was an assassin with a code of honor, and spoiled an attempt by Two-Face to kill Commisioner Gordon. Cassandra is steadfastly loyal, and in contention with Lady Shiva for being the absolute best fighter. Batman, with the consent of Oracle, rightly gave Cassandra the mantle of Batgirl, making her the third person to wear the cowl after Huntress had dishonered it. She's now a regular part of the Bat Family, even with her own cave, though she tends to spend most of her time around Barbara. She is quite attached to Oracle, seeing her as a surrogate big sister, and even mother. Cassandra hasn't talked much with Nightwing, but he's taken her under his wing as well, always offering her an ear if she ever needs someone to talk with.
